Middle School Day Rally

This rally is specialized to address the resources and needs of today's Catholic youth. With an exciting lineup of speakers, musicians, and presenters, the Middle School Day Rally will challenge Catholic youth to stand firm in their faith, rely on the awesome power of Jesus Christ who is their guide, friend, and Savior, and show that faith to the world.

The Sacraments are the highlight of the rally. Teens will join in a dynamic Eucharistic Liturgy during the day and will be given the opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There is also a powerful time of Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration. Many young people encounter the Holy Spirit for the first time. This leads to a tremendous conversion for many young people.

Very Important

Catholic Servant Ministries, Inc. has very specific guidelines regarding modest dress. We ask that you strictly adhere to these policies. Also, please keep in mind that some rules apply specifically to males while others are directed to females.

  1. Shorts, skirts or dresses that are shorter than five inches above the knee while standing are prohibited.
  2. Skirts that reveal midriff are not permitted, nor are shirts that are too low cut from the neck area.
  3. Shirts, shorts or pants are not allowed to sag to the point of revealing one's undergarments while standing.
  4. During all liturgies and prayers, every male, youth or adult must remove and headwear. This includes all hats visors, headbands, bandanas, ect; this is more out of respect than modesty.
  5. Clothing that may appear to have an anti-Christian message will not be permitted.
  6. Shirts with writings that include crude language, promotion of alcohol or drug use, or suggestive material of a crude, sexual nature are prohibited.
  7. There will be no tolerance for cross dressing.
  8. Any individual wishing to serve as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion for the Liturgical celebration is asked to wear long pants or a skirt.
  9. At such events where music is being played, many people often feel moved to dance. While we encourage, we feel it is necessary to remind you that no moves that appear tasteless and vulgar will be permitted. We invite you to have a great time, but please keep it clean!

"Purity requires modesty, an integral part of temperance. Modesty protects the intimate center of the person. It means refusing to unveil what should remain hidden. It is ordered to chastity to whose sensitivity it bears witness. It guides how one looks at others and behaves toward them in conformity with dignity of persons and their solidarity."
-Catechism of the Catholic Church #2521

"Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity."
- 1 Timothy 4:12

"All things are lawful to me but not all things are helpful. I will not be enslaved by anything... the body is not for immortality, but for the Lord; but the immoral man sins against his own body. Do you not know that you are temples of the Holy Spirit within you... so glorify God in your body."
- 1 Corinthians 6: 11-20.

Our Speakers

Ministry Team
Fr. John Gerth

Being from Florida has its “ups” and “downs.” The “Up” side is the sun and getting to meet people from all over the world who come to visit. The “Down” side is the heat and those pesky hurricanes that keep us on our toes. Even though my state has it good times and bad, my faith has been blessedly always a safe haven that has never abandoned me. From my earliest life I can see memories of being in my local parish, being formed by my experiences of holy Priests and Religious, as well as the prayerfulness of my own family. I have tried to carry all the blessings God has given throughout my own.
